"After a lengthy discussion with Ms Dumas and Mr. Ouellette the Committee voted to reject COP’s 15 and 16 (proposals to replace the existing windows with new insulated glass units) and sanction the work originally described in the plans and specs. The original windows are to be restored and reinstalled in the existing openings. Ms Dumas was asked if the CPC would have an issue with storm windows and she replied that they would not, discussion on the benefits of storm windows was tabled."
So this is how it went down. The existing, old windows were restored to their single paned glory because it was in the original "plans and specs"?
No one thought to question it. No one?
If the reason was to preserve the history of the windows by having them restored and then reinstalled then why was the committee fine with covering the windows with modern, unattractive storm windows?
Is it me? Am I making a whole lot over nothing?
I don't think so.
